Inspired by Norse mythology, this game explores the story of a fallen warrior who needs to prove his worth to Odin and be an excellent fit for Valhalla. Valheim is an open-world game that explores the mystical and ever-expanding place named Valheim itself.
The fallen hero must survive alone, craft weapons, build houses, find various resources and venture into new places. And he must defend himself and kill the menacing enemies.
